The Cycle Starts Again

This morning Hope smacked me in the face with the bill of her new baseball cap. I took it from her and she started punching me over and over. My right wrist is hurt. I have bruises. Again. It has been a long time since we have been here. It is not acceptable. I know divorce is hard. I expected regression. I will not allow this cycle again. She never stopped being physical with the Dad. I don’t know what the answer is. But what is happening now isn’t enough. I am not willing to give up on Hope. I am not willing to leave her with The Dad so he can pretend she is doing well. It is so tempting. It would be so easy. It would be so wrong.
